of denver. you can see the stage behind me. everything planned right down to the minute tonight. president obama will enter from the right. the governor from massachusetts, governor romney entering from the left. to give you an idea of the setting here, about 1,000 people inside this debate hall, when it starts. look behind the cameras tonight. we're inside a hockey arena that normally seats 8,000 but they've created this intimate setting as tens of millions watch from their living rooms tonight. when president obama and mitt romney walk onto that stage tonight, it will be the first time they've met face to face in four years. last time, during the presidential race in 2008, during those back-to-back democratic and republican presidential debates during the primaries when candidates from both sides were called on the stage, it was senator obama and governor romney talking. the president congratulated romney when he clinched the republican nomination and this moment in 2007, a labor day parade in 2007. >> good luck to you today. >> reporter: but tonight, they will shake hands in

debate, rather than fighting it. >> it looked like romney wanted to be there and president obama didn't want to be there. >> reporter: some even blamed denver's high elevation for the president's performance. >> when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> exactly. >> and you only have a few hours to adjust -- >> that's interesting. >> i don't know. >> reporter: last night, the president spent much time looking down at his podium, taking notes. and he squandered easy opportunities to go after romney, such as this moment. >> i like pbs, i love big bird. i actually like you, too. but i'm not going to spend money on things to borrow money from china to pay for. >> reporter: a wide opening, but the president took more than 14 hours to come up with a comeback. >> thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. it's about time. >> reporter: many top democrats suggest that one of the problems, maybe one common to incumbents, the president has lived in a bubble for four years, surrounded by adulation, rarely challenged. the campaign today acknowledged they were going to conduct a reassessment

strengths. as president obama touched down in denver, he brought the experience of 22 previous president debates, primary and general election with him. we've seen him draw upon his command in being able to make a bold pledge. >> if we have osama bin laden in our sights, and the pakistani government is unable or unwilling to take them out, then i think that we have to act and we will take them out. >> reporter: and we've seen him tap his reservoir of righteousness to make a strong attack. >> you said we knew where the weapons of mass destruction were. you were wrong. you said that we were going to be greeted as liberators. you were wrong. >> reporter: tonight will be mitt romney's 36th presidential debate. though his first as nominee. his team is hoping he'll show the agility we've seen him display. >> if people are looking for someone who will discriminate against gays, they won't find that in me. >> when is the last time you stood up and spoke out for increasing gay rights? >> right now. >> reporter: as well as his ability to jujitsu, to forcefully use an attack against his attacker. >
